A Stegasaurses tail and a T-Rex Tooth: pre-kindergarten students explore at the Burke Museum!

Posted on

The culmination of the pre-kindergarten class’s exploration about dinosaurs was their trip this week to the Burke Museum. Students saw the reconstruction of the head of a Triceratops, skeletons of an Allosaurus, Stegasaurus and Elasmosaurus. They also touched fossils and then discussed specifically a T-Rex tooth, a spike from a Stegasaurses  tail, the grinder teeth from a herbivore and a vertebra that was about the size of pre-kindergarten teacher Claudia’s fist! Students noticed the vertebra was heavier than everything else. After reading a book with the docent, each child received a paper so they could go on a scavenger hunt and find many different things on display.
